Results Analysis

No surprises here really. The overclocked results of the E8400 at 4.3GHz completely stomp the stock results taken at 3.0GHz. If this shows us one thing, its that the combination of a cheap LGA775 CPU + a solid overclocking motherboard can really turn out some respectable results, especially in single-core benchmarks such as SuperPI that completely thrive on MHz performance.
